Vintage Jeans

The Scoop

Give me all the vintage jeans! These jeans I’m wearing are 14 years old. I remember buying them and several others just about like them. They are Lucky brand and fit better than any jeans I have ever had. They are starting to get a little thin at the knees so I try not to wear them too much. I often watch for this brand in the thrift shops and have a couple of times found some that I added to my collection of jeans. Yes I collect jeans! Ha.

My Outfit

I added a colorful summer top that I bought last year that can be worn off my shoulders. Along with that I wore a pair of old sandals from Target bought a couple of years ago. I had the sandals in a bag to give away but ended up pulling them out for one or two more wears.

The bag is from our local thrift store and in perfect shape. I am seeing these exact macrame bags in the stores for much more than I paid. My necklace is at least 20 years old from Chico’s. It is so different. It is a pink stone shaped as a snake coiled up.

Back In The Mountains

It is so fun being back in the mountains and in the country. Although we saw a bear at the front door last week so I am nervous when I go out on my hikes. But there is something about being outdoors that gives me peace. And the smell of pine is so refreshing and uplifting. Its a beautiful place to be in the summer! See the picture of our bear visitor in my last post here.

Mustard Please

The Scoop

The weekend here was so nice and I am grateful to enjoy it. Low 70s and sunny. When we are here in Arizona we walk almost every where we go. Our favorite grocery store (Sprouts) is next to a Starbucks so we walk there almost daily to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables and then we pick up a coffee on the way back. It is about 3 miles total trip so lots of days it is our workout. We are really into it with our backpacks and sneakers. Ha ha.

I love to cook so much so we don’t eat out often but there is a little sports grill about a mile away that we walk to once in a while for fish tacos. We really try to work in fun with exercise every single day. I try to cook following the Mediterranean diet which is easy when you love fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil, etc. like we do. I also can have a small glass of wine each day when I follow the guidelines.

My Look

I am really loving all the mustard items in the stores lately. I have always loved this color and have a lot of it in my closet but it hasn’t always been easy to find. It is a color that some love and some don’t. I am in the I do camp. I found this top and decided that floral sandals would be so cute with the stripes in the top. I wore my Lucky Brand jeans which are my favorites right now. They are skinny’s but I went up a size for a more relaxed look and feel. To complete the look I carried my mustard back pack and I wore a Kendra Scott necklace.
